Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day in Sweden, and I've made a Mother's Day card for Pyssloteket:

You can find all the details in Pyssloteket's blog.

Have a great Sunday - take care!

Sunday is Mother's Day

...at least here in Sweden it is. I've made one card for my mother-in-law, and one purse card for my mother. I used the same patterned papers for both cards:

Take care!

Birthday Card for Dad's Friend

My dad asked me if I could make a card for his friend who had his birthday last weekend. I was happy to make that card, and I used some of my favourite colours - brown and turquoise. Yum!

On the inside of the card was a pocket for dad to stick a gift card - he was very specific with the measurements so that the gift card would fit perfectly. ;) I think he was quite pleased with how it turned out, because I was paid about the double I usually charge for people who asks me to make cards on commission. ;) Or maybe it's just because he's my dad...

Take care!

A Gift Box

This is an altered box I've made for Magdas Scrapfever - the challenge was to use four colours (dark pink, green, turquoise and brown):

I think I know who'll get this box - but I won't tell... ;)

Take care!

Mini book with Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe

Looooove the papers I've used for this mini book:

I'm planning to use this little book to write down funny things that Kajsa say or do, to have it as a reminder, somewhere to read and have a smile every now and then. The little ones grow so fast and before you know it, they graduate, start to work and move out... ;)

There is a full list of materials used in Pyssloteket's blog, so if you're curious of what I've used, head on over there!

Have a great weekend!

Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #20

A lot of distressing - that's what this week's challenge is all about. Not so hard for me - I LOVE distressing, and I almost always use the technique on my cards and layouts. What about you? Is it a challenge or is it "normal behaviour"? ;)

Any which way - join us over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge and you might be the lucky one to win something nice!

Take care!

Rock Chick

Another layout for Magdas Scrapfever:

This challenge was to get inspired by a music video by Pink. This is my interpretation - with my lovely friend Malin.

Take care!

Lots of Colour

A layout with a 5-step-poem, made for Magdas Scrapfever:

Very unusual of me to use green and purple - AND to use a coloured cardstock as a background. Well, it's fun to try and do something different now and then, right? ;)

Take care!

Yep, she's the goose. I'm the goat. Silly nicknames dot com. ;)

Take care!

Guest designing for Pyssloteket

From now on I will be guest designing for Pyssloteket, and I'm really happy and proud that Anna asked me. The first layout I have created with the gorgeous material Anna provided is this:

The patterned paper I've used as a background is from Pink Paislee - I LOVE it! :D For a more detailed list of materials - check out Pyssloteket's blog.

Take care and have a wonderful Sunday!

Take care everyone and have a lovely weekend!

Mum's Little Model

This layout was inspired by an advert - it's one of the challenges for the crop at Magdas:

I've used lots and lots of mist - two shades of pink and two shades of brown. As I didn't have all the letters I needed for the title, I used a couple of numbers instead - I'm sure you can see which ones. ;)

The crop goes continues throughout May, so there's plenty of time to join! :D

Take care!

Sweet Friend

A new Scrapfever crop has started over at Magda's message board and I'm in - of course! :D My first layout was inspired by a sketch, and this is how it turned out:

The sweet friend of mine is of course Annika whom I miss awfully. England is too far away from Sweden... :(

Take care!

Spring Scream!

This layout is perfect now - May is here and spring is DEFINITELY here:

Kajsa looks like she's doing a proper "spring scream" - if you've read Ronia the Robber's Daughter by Astrid Lindgren, you know what I mean. ;)

Have a lovely day, this first day of May!
Take care!

Tickled Pink Christmas Challenge #3

This month's Christmas challenge is TAGS over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge. It can be a gift tag or a tag used as an embellishment on a card or whatever you can come up with, as long as it has a tag in/on it somehow.

My creation for this challenge is a tag with a greeting I think is very important for Christmas, especially since I call myself the Grinch! ;) Everyone is usually so stressed about everything that needs to be done - but I think it's better to enjoy time with your loved ones, rather than having tons of homemade food on the table and a pile of Christmas gifts that go up to the ceiling.

What can you come up with? I'd love to see your tag creations! This month's prize is 4 Tickled Pink rubber stamps of your choice!!! :D

Take care!
